|BACK TO BROWNSEA!
Leadership is not about who is smarter or tougher. It's about qualities we all have, or can work to improve upon.
LET ME BEGIN BY ENCOURAGING YOU TO POST MESSAGES IN THE CORKBOARD WHICH YOU CAN LINK TO ON SEVERAL PAGES HERE. I WOULD ENCOURAGE YOU TO UTILIZE THAT FEATURE AS A WAY FOR YOU TO SHARE WITH OTHERS YOUR OWN TROOP JLT EXPERIENCE AND IDEAS YOU MAY WANT TO SHARE. I AM FINDING THAT THERE ARE MANY OF YOU WHO SHARE THE PASSION FOR A GOOD TROOP JLT SO LET'S USE THIS SITE TOGETHER TO HELP AND INSPIRE OTHERS! --- ALSO, I AM WORKING ON A PERSONAL GROUP EMAIL TO INCLUDE NEW IDEAS AND RESOURCES FOR JUNIOR LEADER TRAINING. IF YOU WANT TO BE ON THAT LIST, EMAIL ME AND LET ME KNOW!
I never really thought of the internet as a deeply personal experience but in my case it has sort of turned into that. What I would like this site to do for those who navigate it is to feel a "sharing of experience" with me as I guide Scouts through our style of Junior Leader Training. As you "click" through this site, you may find little odds-n-ends of quotes and phrases and paragraphs here and there all about leadership that you wouldn't expect to find. Scouters know how time can be a precious commodity especially when one has to work for a living so let me THANK YOU in advance for taking a look at this JLT site and I hope it can help you in some way towards a mutually beneficial endeavor.
I am Scoutmaster in Troop 659, Cheektowaga, NY. My personal passion is Junior Leader Training. Our course runs throughout the entire 'Scout-Year' from October through early June. We hold Leadership classes once a month at regular meetings & two classes each month at our regularly scheduled campouts. We then hold a 'Graduation' weekend campout in early June. To my knowledge, it is the most comprehensive and elaborate system of Junior Leader Training done by any individual Boy Scout Troop.
Please Keep This In Mind:
As a personal project, I have been building a "Travelling JLT Memorabilia" display. This is now an ongoing project for me. I will soon include a recent picture of it somewhere in the site so I'll keep you posted. Meanwhile if you or anyone you know is willing to part with any type of JLT patch or neckerchief, I would be very interested in purchasing those items. Please get a hold of me by way of my "Contact Page" to let me know the details.
Thank you very much!
